Flood returns to Lagos

The heat in Lagos in the last couple of months has been insane....so insane that you'd pray for rain. But then the rain comes, and there's flood. Awolowo Way, Ikeja was flooded this morning after a down pour (pictured above). Cars were submerged to window level, leaving a number of cars stuck. I think I prefer the hot sun!

Linda, how u no go prefer the HOT sun when u dey under AC 24/7. Me too I no lyk the flood but I no want the sun either

I think it's high time Lagosians cultivate the habit of making their drainage free and clean at all times. Gov Fashola has done a lot to solve flood problems in Lagos, its left for us the masses to help ourselves.

Linda you have to take time out to feature Owerri, Imo State when it rains. Even during dry season the roads are not motorable not to talk of when it rains. Its worse than an eye-sore.
